A Treasure Found in the Kitchen Cabinet!
Aluminum foil is a sculpting medium "treasure" found in homes and churches everywhere. And it's a fun technique that can be used with so many Bible stories. Students can create Bible scenes, characters, and pose key "moments" to capture the attitudes and emotions of both the characters and the student. The possibilities are endless.
There are several places at Rotation.org where you can find these "foil" treasures:
- In this lesson on Ruth, a foil sculpture illustrates one person following another.
- In the Writing Team's Ten Commandments Art Workshop, the foil sculpture captures the "heart" of the Commandments.
- In the Advent Lesson, The Magi - Art Workshop, the focus of the foil sculpture is on the literal position of the Magi, as they humbly worship Jesus.
- Learn more about sculpture as a learning medium in our Art Workshop "Sculpture" forum.
- Sculpture can capture key moments in any Bible story.
- Sculpture allows for the expression of emotions and concepts through your hands and heart, touch and feel.
- Re-posable sculptures allow a student to change their creation with the story.
- Sculpture as a medium "self-adjusts" to the age of the hands and imaginations manipulating it.
- Sculpture on display invites others to contemplate the artist's intentions and creates discussion.
And remember that teaching treasures may be found where you least expect it! Even in your kitchen cabinet.
